About Bayer – Our Expanding History

Bayer Auto, Inc. was established in 1976 when Mark Bayer began performing auto collision work for the surrounding community of Elrosa, MN. Our family-owned business began with only a handful of employees working in a small body shop located on the outskirts of this small Central Minnesota town.


In 1995, Mark founded Mark Bayer Auto and became a licensed auto dealer within the state of Minnesota. At that time, our company also began taking on jobs to build custom trucks and we started fabricating truck bodies to compliment our truck sales.


In 2011, due to our expansion and the type of products being produced, we changed the name Bayer Auto Inc. to Bayer Truck & Equipment, Inc. to better convey our growing services. We have expanded the size of our business through the construction of a third facility along Highway 71 in Elrosa. We continue to provide a wide variety of services, including: truck sales, truck repair, custom fabrication work, and equipment manufacturing.


It has been our commitment to customer service and satisfaction that has allowed Bayer Truck & Equipment to prosper. We have worked with customers throughout the United States, engineering each truck to meet their specific wants and needs. With constant innovation and new design ideas, the future looks very bright.
